Anesthesia and patient monitoring varies greatly among clinics. When you choose your veterinarian, be sure to question the types of anesthetics used, and the protocols for monitoring anesthesia. Often the more expensive anesthetics are safer to use; however, anesthetics are also chosen based upon other factors including: their ability to control pain, their health benefit to the animal, the length of procedure, the age of the animal, and other patient-specific reasons.
